Shrimp & Apple Kabobs


Fall = Apples. After picking 10 pounds of Enterprise apples at a local orchard last weekend, I thought that shrimp and apples sounded like a good combination for a meal - and it was!


Marinating the apples and shrimp together then grilling on skewers was easy and a nice change of pace for dinner. I'm always game for trying something new.

After soaking the wooden skewers for at least 30 minutes in water, I loaded them up, alternating the apples with the shrimp. Then popped them on the grill, cooking about 5 minutes on each side (this cooks up quickly!) over 350° heat.

The shrimp and apple flavor together was so good. I served with a cucumber, tomato & pepper salad and some hot buttered sourdough bread. Hope you like this one!

  • 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice

  • 2 apples, each cut into 8 slices

  • 16 raw jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined


Directions

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes; then drain.

  2. Marinate the apples and shrimp in the list of ingredients for 30 minutes

  3. Heat the grill to 350°.

  4. Weave the apple slices and shrimp, alternating, onto skewers.

  5. Grill about 5 minutes per side till shrimp is opaque.

Notes

I bought the apples and strawberry rhubarb preserves at Wills Family Orchard. The apples were organic, so no pesticides were used on them. And the preserves were so good! They have a variety of produce and other products at their store. It's worth a trip to visit.
